How to Make a Giant Octopus

Exactly what it sounds like: an instructional video on how to make a lifelike stop-motion giant octopus, courtesy of a resourceful Swedish animator who made it for a friend’s film.

The detailed instruction on puppet construction from Chavant clay sculpture to armature to paint are fascinating enough, but it’s worth sitting through the film to check out the Cthulhu-like giant tentacle attack in its final three minutes.
